– Thanks to Mum and Dad I was lucky enough to start riding at the age of 8 and loan my first pony a couple years after, my second pony I share-own and still ride. When I was younger, at the weekends I would help on a riding school and also started the BHS stages. I am now a BSc (Hons) graduate in Equine Studies (Sports Horse Performance) and finished studying in 2013; since then I have been a head groom and assistant manager of two dressage establishments. I started at Blaircourt in July and am now currently studying to become a registered Equine Veterinary Nurse. In my down time if I’m not playing ponies I go on adventures with my dog.
